Drawing inspiration from the struggle against Apartheid and social movements in democratic South Africa, particularly the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC), over the last 10 years Equal Education (EE) has placed educational inequality firmly on the public agenda and defined education as a social justice issue. Started in Khayelitsha in 2008, by a small group of young people from diverse backgrounds, Equal Education has mobilised thousands of learners, parents and community members in support of campaigns for school safety and security in the Western Cape; school infrastructure in the Eastern Cape; scholar transport in rural KwaZulu-Natal; school sanitation in Gauteng; water and sanitation in Limpopo; and nationally-binding school infrastructure standards. This exhibition showcases these campaigns, while paying tribute to the thousands of Equalisers (high school learner members) and parents, and the hundreds of facilitators and staff members who have built the movement into what it is today. Despite difficulties and disappointments, we remain strong and determined to build a better movement and take forward the struggle for quality and equal education. Qina Mfundi. Qina! (Be strong learner. Be strong!)
